DowellGroup Sends Hope to Africa

When: Sunday, November 11

Where: Harrisburg, PA

DowellGroup Customer Service Representative Cheryl Klinger helped sew dressed made out of pillow cases to send to young girls through the Little Dresses for Africa organization, which sends to young girls through orphanages, churches and schools in Africa.

 The Little Dresses for Africa organization has provided dresses for young girls in 43 countries in Africa. Dresses have also been sent to other countries in crisis, such as Honduras, Guatemala, the Philippines, Cambodia, Mexico and Haiti.

Because orphan girls are among the most devalued and abused in their culture, it is the mission of Little Dresses for Africa to plant in the hearts of these little girls that they are worthy. The DowellGroup was not only part of sending dresses, they were sending hope
